Too Faced A Few of My Favourite Things

Too Faced A Few of My Favourite Things Palette


I don't know what reeled me in the hardest - the beauty of the pink and gold chevron print (designed by Mary Mcdonald) that features both on the palette and coordinating make-up bag or the fact when I snagged this palette it was in the Debenhams Black Friday sale as well as being able to redeem some beauty points against the price. Score indeed.

Typically I tend to avoid palettes that contain more than one category of product - a complete eye palette yes, a lip and eye palette no thank you. However as the lip product that compliments this palette comes as a separate lip crayon and solely contains powder products I was sold. Yes the Too Faced A Few of My Favourite Things palette is slightly larger than you typical palette but it still comfortably fits into the majority of bags and is perfect for travel as it is lightweight, comes with all you need in terms of powder products and comes complete with the most beautiful make-up bag. I should mention that the Too Faced A Few of My Favourite Things is presented within reinforced cardboard that will undoubtedly get a little rough around the edges with wear and tear but it does seem to be fairly sturdy.

The Too Faced A Few of My Favourite Things contains twenty large eyeshadows (1.6g) each that have various textures, finishes and of course shades. There truly is a colour for every occasion and taste and I really like that the kit contains a few blending shades (Chocolate Milk and Woolen Mittens) which are matte in formula. As there is twenty shades I am not going to do a colour run down rather I will let the swatches do the talking. Some application notes would be that the lighter matte shades are not as pigmented as the deeper shades which I somewhat expected also Whiskers on Mittens which is a glitter formulation does take some work to garner colour pay off too. The rest of the eyeshadows had good to excellent pigmentation and were a dream to apply and blend.



Being a powder based palette the Too Faced A Few of My Favourite Things contains two blushes: Raindrops on Roses (very similar to NARS Orgasm Blush) and Melt into Spring both of which are pink toned with the latter running slightly more coral based. In terms of texture they do remind me a lot of NARS blushes in that they have a slightly drier texture but apply beautifully and do not settle into skin imperfections and should suit most skin tones. The kit also features a matte olive toned bronzer which can be used to sculpt and contour as well as adding a little warmth to the skin. Due to the shade I would not recommend this bronzer for anything deeper than a medium complexion. However don't let that put you off as there is another bronze offering within the Sun Bunny Duo which is more universal although shimmer based. I deem the Sun Bunny duo to be two highlighters that double up as eyeshadows.

Along with the huge palette the kit grants you a divine Too Face cosmetic bag which is sizeable enough to fit the palette inside. It also includes a mini and somewhat cringe worthy titled Mascara - Too Face Better than Sex Mascara which I have yet to try and a Too Faced Lip Injection Color Bomb Lip Stain in Bee Sting which my lips oddly seem to react adversely too. I understand that this light, glossy nude pink lip stain is intended to tingle and encourage the lips to swell to some degree but my lips flat out burned rather than tingled, it behaved in the same way on my arm too. I'm a little disappointed that this happened as it is such a pretty hue that I am imagine would wear well but hey sometimes these things happen!

Too Faced A Few of My Favourite Things palette rrp £48 is exclusive to Debenhams in the UK but has sold out online (for now I imagine more stock should arrive soon) but my local store had plenty in stock.

  6. I love the palette, but I reacted badly to the same lip product I bought in full size. My lips burned, and I had a red ring around them for two days, like I had been licking my lips constantly. It was terrible! Great swatches!

  10. I'm starting lust over it! Aww too bad you got a really bad reaction from the lip product.
    It seems like a good product to have though, only if you don't have a sensitive skin.
